  • Bugged Out XIX Birthday: Maya, Heidi, Miss Kittin

    Bugged Out enters its twentieth year celebrating their 19th birthday on November 23rd with a multi-room extravaganza at Fire. The show is headlined by Maya Jane Coles who burst on to the house scene in 2010 with flame orange hair and a unique vision fully realised in her debut album ‘Comfort’ this summer. Heidi joined us at Bugged Out this time last year and played one of the best sets of 2012, with her Jackathon nights and releases she curates and pulls together the true spirits of house and techno always with an eye on the party and her hands never too far from a Prince record. Heidi released a Jackathon 12” last summer with Maya and Miss Kittin and we’ve been trying to get all three ladies together since. Tonight we realise that with special guest Miss Kittin joining the bill in the main room. Kittin has been a part of the Bugged Out family since she stole the show back in 2001. A regular fixture at our nights at The End she also compiled one of our Bugged Out Mix albums in 2006 and returned to the fray this year with her album Calling From The Stars. (more…)

  • Hold Tight London! The Chemical Brothers DJ set 30.11.13

    The Chemical Brothers play an exclusive DJ set for Bugged Out on November 30th at Vauxhall’s Area club, their first London appearance since Spring last year. Expect 3 hours from Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons. Their set was one of the highlights of the Bugged Out Weekender with new material and Chems classics featuring amongst their unique take on acid, techno and house. No one sounds like the Brothers. Also expect copious amounts of smoke, strobes and for this to sell out quickly as the space is relatively intimate for a Chems appearance. James Holroyd warms up for Tom & Ed with a special guest announced the night before.
